Lucchese Since 1883 M5725.S54 Lucchese are the best

Reviewer: Anonymous from Florida
These are my 2nd pair of lucchese. Don't be discouraged by reviews that say too stiff. They use some kind of sealer that makes them feel like they are starched but all you need to do is massage or need the leather. They will break in the first day you wear them to a very soft leather! I can only wear C widths, not too many boots come in C. I can go all day, thats how comfortable they are. Dan Post makes a comfortable boot also but not in C widths.

These shoes are awesome. Beautifully made as all Mezlan shoes are. These shoes are very stylish but not too over the top. They look great with a suit or even slightly dressed down with a pair slacks.

Patagonia Super Alpine Bibs Super - High quality, non-baggy alpine bib!

Reviewer: alpineskier from Southern California
This is my second bib purchase from Patagonia for use in on and off-piste alpine skiing. The first pair lasted a decade, so my expectations from Patagonia products is high. I first tried the Patagonia Powslayer bib. The medium powslayer was huge(I am 5'10, 165). It fit like a pair of trash bags. I can't imagine skiing in the powslayer. Even the waist was incredibly loose (I am 33") and would not prevent snow from sneaking in during a fall on a deep powder day when paired with my arc'teryx jacket. I sent the powslayer back and ordered the super alpine bib - glad I did! I would describe the super alpine fit as "technical". The pants are not baggy and can be tightly secured to your boots. Waist and bib top fit comfortably but are not loose. The goretex pro material is bomber including the improved edge guard fabric which my prior pair lacked. I tend to get hot, and have already used the full side vents on a bluebird day. I can't imagine these not lasting a decade.
Patagonia Super Alpine Jacket Hurricane Proof

Talk about a good first impression. Right after I got this jacket I was in the thick of it that was Super Storm/ Hurricane Sandy. In both the rain and the snow that it dumped on us it certainly proved its worth. Hands down my favorite thing about this jacket is the wrist gaskets...what a great addition. The fit is spot on as it is cut athletic but easy to layer underneath as the temps drop. At this point I have been through multiple Gore-tex Shells and this is my favorite so far. Its burly and is taking all the abuse I can give it. As a disclaimer I test products for the Gore company.
